I have come to the conclusion that I hate the organ music on the earliest episodes of this series. The shows were a great deal better when that was put aside.
The organ music reminds me of chickens squawking in a barnyard.

The twist at the end of this one was cool!
Lee J. Cobb would have never done another thing as an actor if this was used to show an example of his work.

Season 1, episode 10.
Original air date: 26 October 1951.
An ambitious, headstrong businessman uses his huge personal fortune to construct a spaceship that will take him to Mars.
Cast: Lee J. Cobb (Wayne Crowder), Vinton Hayworth (Davis), Cameron Prud`Homme (Marty Peters) and Harry Townes (Wilkins).
From IMDB.
Very good story well developped. Great interpretation of Lee J. Cobb.

One of the more enjoyable ToTs, but one of the most awkwardly staged as well. Cobb blows his lines in the early segment, the lighting in this segment is odd, as well. One camera was dark,the other brightly lit, and when they switched camerasm I thought for a moment they had switched to another film! There's even a segment where, if you watch closely, you can see off the set for a half-second (through the office window). Oh, well, that's live TV!

Overall, one of the better scripts, and Cobb's acting (when he remembers his lines) carries through.

Abit of a suprise at the end. I like the way of using stock footage instead of special effects. Lee J. Cobb played his part to a tea of driven indivual with the money and hardly any sense. Again, excellant job of download.
